Your eyes need your attention; you shouldn’t take them for granted. Take care of your eyes and keep them healthy, so that you always have a great vision. Following are a few things you can do to keep your eyes healthy:

  • Eat Healthily: Your eye will stay healthy if you take food with good nutritional value. Nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, lutein, and omega-3 fatty acids lessen down the eye diseases that develop with age, such as, cataracts and macular degeneration.
  • NO to Smoking: Smoking damages your optic nerve, helps developing cataract, and many other medical problems. Take help from a doctor. The more you try to quit it, you can assume that you are coming closer to quit it forever. Try harder every next time and soon you won’t feel the need for it.
  • Sunglasses: Protect your eyes from ultraviolet rays. Ultraviolet exposures will boost the chances of your cataracts and macular degeneration. Buy a high-quality sunglass, such as Ray Ban sunglasses that can keep away 99% to 100% UVA, and UVB rays penetrate your eyes. You can use polarized glasses to reduce glare on your eyes.
  • Safety Eyewear: Protective goggles and safety glasses keep away the hazardous as well as airborne materials from your eyes while you are outdoors. Also, they protect your eyes when you are inside home working. Some sports such as racquetball, lacrosse and ice hockey also might cause injury to your eyes. So, get eye protection. Polycarbonate lenses on sports goggles, helmets with face masks will protect your eyes.
  • Look away from Computer Screen: Don’t stare at your computer screen or phone screen for too long. This can cause many disorders in your body, such as:
  • Blurry vision
  • Eyestrain
  • Cannot focus things at a distance
  • Headaches
  • Dry eyes
  • Back, shoulder and neck pain
